Former manager has rejected an approach from Lyon, according to reports.

The 48-year-old has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in April having spent just six months in charge at Stamford Bridge.

According to , Lyon owner John Textor held talks with Potter this week over the possibility of replacing Laurent Blanc.

However, reports that Potter has rejected the chance to manage the Ligue 1 side, although he did consider the offer as an ‘appealing opportunity’.

Following a 4-1 defeat at home to Paris Saint-Germain last Sunday, Lyon’s ultras gave the players a dressing down on the pitch.

Blanc, meanwhile, has even suggested that Lyon’s hierarchy may need to get rid of him.

After the 4-1 loss at home to Montpellier last month, Blanc was asked what needed to be changed, to which he replied: ‘You have to change the manager.’

When asked if he wanted to leave Lyon, he replied: ‘No, but you’re asking me what has to be done, and I’m saying you might have to change the manager.’
